    I know! It's all most upsetting. I wonder if he/she/it could have somehow ended up staying behind in the cheese shop where he grabbed lunch?

      Feeling murkier as the day progresses. Not a happy bunny.

      Friend of mine said they had similar symptoms and tested positive once they eased up, which is not encouraging. I will have to contact the covid study people and blag more tests.

        Tea has been lamb chops with chips, peas, gravy and mint sauce. Very nice it was

          It does sound as if it's progressing rather like mine did. Fingers crossed it's just the lurgy

            One less garden building… the log store has now been demolished (although I might re-purpose the roof to give the ride-on mower a bit more protection in winter). 5 buildings left, 3 of which are on the demolition list (but not for a while)

                The car earlier was a Porsche Boxster S which they picked up for a mere £1000, and it turned out it mostly just needed the oil changing in the gear box and a bit of work on the brakes.

                From a thread I found on there, it seems that said £1000 Porsche episode is quite a famous one. I followed the suggestion on there to look it up on the MOT checking service; its MOT runs until next May, suggesting it was done in May this year, but oddly enough its car tax was due in April but hasn't been paid

                And later, a couple more of the motorway cops thing. They pad this out with footage of wholly unrelated stuff, so for example they'll be after a Transit van near Manchester and it'll cut to dashcam footage of an Astra losing control in Surrey several years earlier, supposedly as an illustration of the Bad Things that can happen in this kind of situation; but then it goes back to the Transit van pursuit and none of the Bad Things happen, or not in any way even remotely similar to the clip they just inserted

                Goodnight all

                  Sounds like the Blind Frog Ranch lot are involved in the production company.

                  Remember: you heard it here first. .

                    Morning denizens

                    Sunny start for a change, though it's supposed to cloud over later. Currently 14°C and possibly soaring to 22°, and the barometers are up a little more at 1013/1021mB

                      Morning all
                      Demolition expert has been instructed to tidy up the mess he made last night.

                      CBS, etc. No sign of the turtle.
